Waiting



In this rain drenched realm,
a thin oath,
transparent and harrowing
bringing worms and grubs 
gasping
to the surface.
Borrow or steal 
the guess that brings a change.
Either I  stifle the marrow
or march into the buried heart 
and rip it free.

I saw the new day waiting.






This weeks words: either, harrowing, marrow, grubs,  thin, oath,
saw, guess, rare, march, borrow, transparent

If

WE WRITE POEMS prompt -153-changing-the-impossible



If birds could swim and fish could fly
Words would flow like tears I cry.

Winter scars behind this heart
My leaves unfurl with springs fresh start.
